    Where are you located in Petaluma?

      Hi, Sandra —

      Thank you for your question.

      As the Lab is at a private residence, the address is given once full registration is processed (registration, payment, and liability documents.)

      That being said, the Lab is on the west side of Petaluma near Cherry Valley school.

      Let us know if you have any other questions!

      Candace & Antonia
